Flag of Mauritius (GIF)



The national flag of Mauritius (Mauritian Creole: Drapo Moris; French: Drapeau de Maurice) consists of four equal horizontal red, blue, yellow, and green bands. The red color represents the struggle for freedom and independence. The blue band represents the Indian Ocean. While yellow represents the new light of independence, green represents Mauritius's agriculture. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on March 12, 1968.

The shield of its coat of arms includes a ship symbolizing European settlers, three palm trees depicting the country's tropical vegetation and the country's three dependencies, a key symbolizing the strategic importance of the island, and a star depicting the island as the star of the Indian Ocean. Supported by an extinct dodo and a sambar deer, on either side of the shield are two sugar canes, the country's main agricultural product.

The Mauritius flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
